Physiotherapy Services

Physiotherapists optimise the way a person’s body moves and functions.

At CDS SA our physiotherapy services are individualised programs that focus on strength, positioning, fitness, stability and increased functional capacity. Our physiotherapists work together with clients, families, and their supports to provide physiotherapy services that address any mobility concerns to maximise participation in day-to-day life and encourage engagement.

If you live in metropolitan Adelaide or the Greater Adelaide Region, we may be able to come to you to help support with your goals in your environment. This can be at home, school, work, the gym, wherever you need to be.

Physiotherapy Services

Physiotherapy within the NDIS is a vital component of support for individuals with disabilities. Physiotherapists work closely with clients to address physical challenges and promote overall well-being.
Here’s how physiotherapy can help NDIS participants:
Functional Mobility – Physiotherapists assess and improve clients’ mobility, including walking, standing, transferring, and using mobility aids like wheelchairs or walking frames. They develop personalised exercise programs to enhance strength, flexibility, and balance, enabling clients to navigate their environments more independently.
Pain Management – Physiotherapy interventions such as manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, and modalities like heat or cold therapy can help manage pain associated with musculoskeletal conditions, neurological disorders, or injuries. Physiotherapists also educate clients on pain management techniques and ergonomic principles.
Rehabilitation – Physiotherapists support clients in recovering from injuries, surgeries, or neurological events like strokes or spinal cord injuries. They design rehabilitation programs tailored to individual needs, focusing on restoring function, improving movement patterns, and regaining independence in daily activities.
Respiratory Management – Physiotherapists help clients with respiratory conditions like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or neuromuscular disorders optimize lung function through breathing exercises, airway clearance techniques, and respiratory muscle training.
Neurological Rehabilitation – Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in supporting individuals with neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease. Physiotherapists utilise neurorehabilitation techniques to improve motor control, coordination, balance, and functional abilities.
Fall Prevention – Physiotherapists assess fall risk factors and develop personalised fall prevention strategies, including balance exercises, gait training, home modifications, and education on safety awareness, reducing the risk of falls and related injuries.
Fitness and Wellness – Physiotherapists promote overall health and well-being by encouraging physical activity, healthy lifestyle choices, and injury prevention strategies. They may lead group exercise classes, provide advice on exercise programs, and support clients in setting and achieving fitness goals.
